made on the same day, in fact come as weekly jobless claims unexpectedly skyrocketed. president obama created the jobs council back in 2011, billing the advisory board of prominent business leaders and economists from around the nation who were to offer proposals to help spur job creation and economic growth. the president only met with his jobs counselor handful of times, four to be exact, rejecting or ignoring many proposals, including a plan to lower tax rates in order to broaden the overall tax base. the council's last official meeting one and one year ago. unemployment has dropped from more than 9 percent of the council's inception to the current rate of 78%, but more than 23 million americans remain of work or are stuck in part-time jobs , wanted full-time work for. meantime, we learned initial jobless claims rose to 360,000 last week, an unexpected jump of over 38,000 from the prior week's four year low. the obama economy seems stuck in neutral. recoveries fragile. yesterday the drop in gdp. tomorrow's january unemployment report expected to remain. critics said the president h
's four year low. the obama economy seems stuck in neutral. recoveries fragile. yesterday the drop in gdp. tomorrow's january unemployment report expected to remain. critics said the president has not remained lazar focused on creating jobs, and the dissolution of the jobs council is just the latest example of that. fox news senior white house correspondent with our report. >> more than one year after his last meeting with the group, president obama is now eviewing the charter for is jobs council. the unemployment rate is falling a little more than a percentage point as the council's first meeting two years ago and no one in the white house says it has fallen far enough. officials defend the council's work in mr. obama's interaction with it. >> the jobs council provided us a series of ideas, many of which the president acted on. it did not require some leaves us ideaso be generated. >> from the start critics believe the council was intended to create the appearance of action in the face of soaring unemployment. it only met four times and had fewer than two dozen conference calls enlisting
. >> the bottom line is this, people, we got a lot of work to do. >> president obama takes the stage. how will congress respond? >> washington has to deal with its spending problem. i've had enough of it. >> plus -- >> please remove that woman. >> -- drone war drama. a new civil war in the gop. ♪ california >> and when have you heard presidential prospects talk like this? >> they were probably more insightful. >> i'm probably the healthiest fat guy you've seen in your life. >> we take on all the week's politics right now. >>> hello again. here in the northeast, we are still digging out from that massive blizzard. new york, spared the worst. more than three feet in parts of connecticut and massachusetts. 40 million people affected. over 350,000 homes without power. abc news will keep an eye on that all day long, and right here we're grateful that everyone on the powerhouse roundtable able to make it in. planes, trains and aubs through the storm. we have a packed week of politics around the table. abc's chief white house correspondent jonathan karl, republican strategist nicolle wallace,
couldn't stand barack obama and can't stand anyone that barack obama nominates. and the surge was something that was his. i think that almost in a way john mccain made the surge into the war as john mccain would have fought it as commander-in-chief. and anyone who questions it gets the wrath of mccain. and i watched that hearing, that part of the hearing with colonel jack jacobs and pat murphy, the governor of pennsylvania who served in iraq. and both of those guys were at the bottom of the pile. and you view war differently. but the lesson that these two men took from vietnam seems to have been so different. hagel took the questioning, the same thing patrick murphy feels, being lied to and feeling anger for knowing you friends died for what you believe to be a lie. >> here's lindsay graham, badgering defense nominee hagel. about his whether the iranian revolutionary guard should be designated terrorist organization. i think this is aimed at south carolina's right wing. let's listen. >> if there was a vote on the floor of the senate this afternoon, to label the iranian revolut
obama deputy campaing manager stephanie cutter, both white house veterans and from the congress representative tom cole and keith ellison, democrat of minnesota. let's get right to you, jon karl. you've been digging into the white house. what are their plans for the state of the union? >> the white house, the president wants to see this, the headline coming out of the speech as it was about jobs and the economy. that's going to be the focus here. they're a little stung by some of the criticism of the inaugural for not focusing on jobs. >> of course. >> they would argue it's not fair, but that's -- so this is going to have new initiatives on infrastructure, on education, on clean energy, and it's going to be all about the middle class expanding the middle class and a big warning on this, the automatic spending cuts that are scheduled to go in effect on march 1st. >> i do want to talk about that. that sequester across-the-board spending cuts. how about the tone? one of the things we've seen from the president since his re-election since is fairly confrontational across the board.
%, unemployment is where it was when barack obama took office, we are adding about 150,000 jobs a month, but john, the real problem here is this slow growing is occurring when we have had five straight trillion dollars worth of defense deficits to pump it up and we get $85 billion a month in transfusions a month from the fed and we are still limping along like a mature and quite frankly modest economy. >> eleanor? >> i think these numbers reflect the fact that government is shrinking and the defense department really pulled back in the last quarter of last year. it is a cautionary sign and looks like both parties are kind of sleepwalking their way toward a sequester. the ropes don't want to -- the republicans don't want to give up anything on the revenue side they would rather take a hit in spending. the democrats have protect social security, pell grants and medicaid, so they are not going to cave first. so if neither party blinks, the sequester will go ahead and we'll see further contraction in the economy. but you know, i'm not that glammy. i take my cue are from mark sandy, an accomplished ec
'll take a fair and balanced look at it coming up. also new developments today with president obama's health care law. as questions come up about a company that has been awarded a 340 million dollar loan to set up these health insurance exchanges. despite having a history of consumer and regulatory complaints, i mean, lots of complaints, now, the house oversight committee started asking questions about the company and how exactly it got selected to participate in obamacare, given its checkered history. and that committee just told us within the hour, that it is now getting some responses to its inquirienquiries, we're not, but stu varney is on the fox business network and he's up to speed. so, stu, it just so happens that this company we're talking about, that's going to help, you know, we talk about the exchanges under obamacare and i refer to it like the expedia.com, you go online and say, this is how old i am, my medical history. what are my options? they say you can have this plan and this plan and under obamacare, the government is creating these supposedly nonprofit entities t
was listening to president obama call for gun control, she had no way of knowing that in a matter of only a few hours, her family would become the latest in chicago to be ripped apart by a gunshot. her 18-year-old sister was shot and killed while walking with friends, one of whom may have been the intended target. cnn's ted rowlands has moran the story. he's joining us now. what are you finding out, ted? >> reporter: well, wolf, it is just another tragic story coming out of chicago. another teenager loses her life. as you mention, a 14-year-old girl who was up on stage with the president, listening to him talk about gun violence, would soon find out that her sister was also shot and killed. when president obama returned to chicago last week to talk about gun violence, 14-year-old destiny warren was one of the high school students standing behind him. a few hours later, destiny's 18-year-old sister was shot and killed in this alley in north chicago. >> all this gun violence that's going on out here, you never think it will be your child. this is the hardest thing for me in my life. >> reporter:
bennia minute netanyahu says president obama's trip to israel next month will emphasize the strong ties between got the two countries. netanyahu welcomed obama's visit and says there are three main topics on the leader's agenda. >> the president and i talk about this visit and agree that we will discuss three main issues. iran's arms race. iran's attempts to arm itself with the nuclear weapons and the situation in syria and its implication for the region's security as well as that of israel and the united states, of course. >> and america's toughest sheriff is joining forces with one of america's toughest action stars. arizona sheriff joe arpaio and actor steven segal. more than 3,000 people joined the volunteer positive for salmonella icy. arpaio says itle help deter school shooters and won't cost taxpayers a dime. that is all the time we have for us here in washington. "fox news sunday" is coming up next. chris wallace has exclusive interviews with house minority leader nancy pelosi and senator john mccain. you don't want to miss that. i'm unroberts in for -- i'm john roberts in
by violence and gun violence. so i think that moving forward you will continue to hear president obama make these types of broad-based arguments in terms of the policy and getting stiffer gun legislation passed. you also heard president obama saying some of the measures he is calling for deserve a vote. realistically does he expect a reinstatement of the ban on assault weapons? probably not. he will continue to call for a vote but i think today is an indication that he's going to continue to press for other things like improving mental health services, early childhood education, and alongside that continue to fight for the legislation in terms of what is realistic, probably most likely getting universal background checks. that seems to have the broadest base of support at this time, martin, but we're really getting a window into the tactic this president will take moving forward as he does try to combat gun violence. again, getting personal today. it reminded me of his state of the union address when he had that rousing finish at the end which was also quite emotional when he spoke to the v
happened. sick stuff. and it seems to be growing in inverse proportion to obama's popularity. the better he looks, the worse these characters, inhofe, cruz, mccain, and lindsey graham, are determined to look. did you notice the smile on john boehner's face sitting up there behind the president during the state of the union? if you did, you're imagining things. so afraid of the hard hating right of republicans these days of every stripe, even boehner's scared to death of looking like he might like something barack obama had to say. to do that is to risk political death in these days. let's go at it. our guests are joy reid of the grio and michael steele, former chairman of the republican national committee. both are msnbc analysts and good ones. let's take a look at this. is this delay on the hagel vote about playing for time hoping new information comes out about them? "the new york times" reports today that anti-hagel groups are right now hoping for exactly that. quote, leaders of these groups said in interviews that they expected their efforts to include more phone calls urging conservati
leader tom daschle and later for barack obama. when the freshman senator decided to make a run for the white house in 2008 he tapped mcdonough to be his foreign policy adviser for the campaign and once president, obama appointed him. the president noted when he announced him as his pick, mcdonough has been involved in every major foreign policy decision including the call to get osama bin laden. >> i thought dennis likes to pull all-nighters. the truth is nobody outworks denis mcdonough. >> here he is. mr. mcdonough, welcome to "meet the press." >> thanks for having me. >> this is a tough job. you are the fourth one to have it. what is your key part of your goal for this job. as the president has a narrow window. how do you approach it? >> my approach is focus on something that jim baker told me the other day. reach out to several of the other chiefs of staff. he said as long as you're focused and not on chief, you're going to be okay. i got to tell you i'm working with a staff that is excellent. i'm really honored to be part of it. i'm honored that the president has laid this
and blocked president obama as a president. i feel like a democratic president should be able to put into the cabinet who he wants to put in that position. the simple fact is, he is the president. why should a democratic president allow people like lindsey gramm, john mccain, who ran for president -- the federalist papers speaks directly about the filibuster. hamilton's book about this. when a small minority is able to -- is able to stop the progress of the american people, please put somebody in have of them speak on the filibuster. pull some -- put somebody in and have them speak on the filibuster. host: here are some quotes about the luster -- the filibuster. an independent culpa --call from michigan. caller: there are more important issues. i think this is a slap to our presidency and an insult. host: on twitter -- being park, illinois, chris and the republican line. caller: if you look closely at what republicans are objecting to, it is one or two things. especially because mr. hagel is a republican, he looks alarmed getting attacked on those accounts. if he has an honest disagr
. is obama's bill repeats the failures of past legislation and dead on arrival in congress. has the president concluded it's time for him to drive this reform and would that not kill what is being put together on capitol hill? >> on the contrary, the president, i think you saw congressman ryan and many others commented. even president bush's former speech writer commented favorably on the president's the approach we are taking to immigration reform. let's strengthen our borders and make sure there is an earned path to citizenship, provided people who earn it learn their english and pay their back taxes and have a criminal background tax. and make sure the legal immigration system is a reasonable opportunity for people so that they don't get kicked out of the system by others. we're going to continue to do that. the fact of this report, david, i think all it says to me is that we are doing exactly what we said we would do, which is we will be prepared in the event that the bipartisan talks going on the hill which, by the way, were aggressively supporting. if those do not work out, then we will
for majority leader tom daschle and later for barack obama. when he decided to make a run for the white house in 2008 he tapped mcdonough to be his foreign policy adviser to the campaign. the president announced him as his pick, mcdonough involved in every major foreign policy decision, including the call to get osama bin laden. >> i actually begun to think that denis likes pulling all-nighters. the truth is nobody outworks denis mcdonough. >> here he is. mr. mcdonough, welcome to "meet the press." >> thanks so much for having me, david. >> this is a tough job. you're the fourth one to have it. what is the key, part of your goal for this job as the president has a narrow window? how do you approach it? >> my approach is to focus on something jim baker told me just the other day, actually. reach out to several of the other chiefs of staff in the past and he said as long as you you focused on the staff and not on the chief, you are going to be okay. i'm working with a staff that is excellent. i'm real honored the president has laid this responsibility to me and i look forward to doing it. >> fr
couldn't stand george w. bush. he was denied it again so he couldn't stand barack obama and can't stand anyone that barack obama nominates. and the surge was something that was his. i think that almost in a way john mccain made the surge into the war as john mccain would have fought it as commander-in-chief, and anyone who questions it gets the wrath of mccain. and i watched that hearing or that part of the hearing with colonel jack jacobs and patrick murphy, the former congressman of pennsylvania that served in iraq. both of those guys have been at the bottom of the pile, as jack jacobs calls it, like hagel and mccain, you just view war differently. but the lesson these two men took from vietnam seems to be so different. hagel took the questioning, the same thing patrick murphy feels, being lied to and knowing that anger that your friends died for what you believe to be a lie. mccain seems to have taken something different from it. >> we're all different. here is chuck hagel in vietnam back in '68 when he went in. he was an enlisted soldier and rose to sergeant. a noncommissioned offic

the justices to overturn prop 8. president obama reiterated his support for days by and lesbians to have the same protections under the law last month. and they hoped the president's brief would help overturn prop 8 and make it unconstitutional to ban same-sex marriage in the future. the government did file a brief last week saying section three of bow ma was unconstitutional. and today is the last day of work for pope benedict. the has pledged quote unconditional reverence and oh beadance. he gave an unexpected speech today, in which he encouraged the cardinals to work together harmoniously. the cardinals will meet monday. the pope leaves the palace for the last time as pope at 5:00 tonight at 8:00 pm he is officially retired. we'll be back after the break. you're going to want to stay with us. it's a pretty, little town, with an ugly reputation. >> you just google harrison, what will come up is the klan. i'm all for that. >> the kkk doesn't speak for us at all. it speaks against god. (vo) which side will win the soul of harrison? >> we're never gonna move. they think t
start with developing news in florida where the white house confirmed that president obama teed off with golfing great tiger woods today. woods lives about an hour and a half from where president obama is vacationing. they will be on the course for several more hours of course. joining us on the course is tim rosaforte. you are at the resort with the president. what more can you tell us? >> the floridaen golf and react club in palm city, florida is where they played their round of golf. the president is visiting here through some friends of his in houston. he was introduced to the golf course and as a result of that has decided to take a golf buddies trip more than anything else. he took lessons from butch harmon and his son, claude. they have been talking about playing their first round of golf. it was supposed to happen at the medalist about 30 minutes away. because of the weather and the security and everything they decided to do it here. and so at about 11:00 today they went off the first tee for their first round of golf. this is not the first time they have been together. they
with obama? why can't politics be a matter of belief and honest disagreement, not hatred? why the sick little intramurals we saw today? we begin with senator jeanne shaheen of new hampshire. i want you to watch this back-and-forth between john mccain and the witness today, chuck hagel. let's take a look. >> were you correct or incorrect when you said that the surge would be the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country since vietnam? were you correct or incorrect? >> my -- >> yes or no. >> my reference -- >> can you answer the question, senator hagel? the question is, were you right or wrong? that's a pretty straightforward question. >> well -- >> i would like to answer whether you were right or wrong, and then you are free to elaborate. >> well, i'm not going to give you a yes or no answer -- >> well, let the record show you refused to answer this question. now, please go ahead. >> if you would like me to explain why -- >> i actually would like an answer. yes or no. >> well, i'm not going to give you a yes or no. i think it's far more complicated than that, as i have already said
her an a. obama was the face, but hillary was constantly on the road. i want to say something about hagel confirmation. host: which we will talk about at 8:30. caller: people have to understand -- host: i will have to keep it there. if you want to join us at 8:30, you're welcome to do that. international related, this is t" about iranon post about ira -- that is in the washington post. this also from the post, when it comes to investment in the united states by other countries. howard schneider writes -- secretary of state hillary clinton and her performance over the past four years -- we are getting the opportunity to assess how she did in her position you can do so by phone, give us a call that best represents you, and twitter and facebook are available to. st. paul, minnesota, the democrats' line. guest: i think she did an admirable job. here is one thing that troubles meet -- it is cheerleading versus effectiveness. i think condoleeza rice was one of the most dynamic individuals to serve. condoleeza rice was admirable too. she was great. she was articulate, well educated, did so
word today from president obama. he's taking on the gop on the right fiscal course for the country. he released his weekly radio address and says it's time to finish the job of cutting the deficit by the goal of $4 trillion. >> i disagree with republicans who think we should do that by making even bigger cuts to things like education and job training or medicare and social security benefits. that would force our senior citizens and working families to bear the burden of deficit reduction while the wealthiest are asked to do nothing more. that won't work. we can't just cut our way to prosperity. >> republicans aren't holding back in their gop address today. criticizing the president over the upcoming threat of sequestration. >> what the president failed to mention was that the sequester was his idea proposed by his administration during the debt limit negotiations in 2011. and now we in the house on behalf of our constituents are calling on the president to join us in replacing his sequester with better, more responsible spending cuts. >> joining me now, correspondent for the garden, an
